DescriptionStart same as Lost Arrow. Aid the crack to its top. Pendulum left to a bolt ladder and ascend the ladder to a hook move finish.
Note: This route offers an excellent basic course in aid climbing. Originally done with pitons, it is now done totally with nuts.
For training purposes, the leader would create a hanging belay high and to the right of the crack where there were several bolts and the second would climb one move higher on the crack take lead and then pendulum left to a bolt ladder and hook move.
FYI..The park now forbids new bolts and the use of pitons.
